It was september. The day was quite sunny and little bit windy. Tdifferent than in Poland. I knew that was a new beginning for me. My dream finally came true. That was the live which I have always wanted. Without parental care, without boundries. Also living in such big city as Chicago was more than I could have ever asked for. I got my first job, later I rented my first small flat. But I relized that was something missing in that beatiful picture.

The cage, special pelled food, hay, accessories for the cage and bathing powder went over 200$. But when I saw my rodent sitting quietly in a special box my anger just disapper very quickly. And I did not care about the money anymore.
I was extremely happy because I had a new furry roommate. In my room I set up a cage I put all needed accessories in. Then I moved my chinchilla in to it’s new home. At pet store I bought few books about chinchillas. I learned that chinchillas have nocturnal way of live. I thought during the night it will play with new toys or eat hay. I was wrong. The first nights were disaster. My sweet chinchilla made a competition for itself to jump and much as much noise as it could....
